Welcome to the Computer Science Department at NMSU! Computer Science is an exciting field to be in, and our department is likewise an exciting place in which to pursue your academic dreams! We now have 12 tenure-track faculty and two wonderful teaching faculty bringing great research and teaching to NMSU.

The department has a strong record of research accomplishments in areas such as artificial intelligence, computer networks, bioinformatics, data mining, computer architecture, human-computer interaction, software engineering, and theoretical computer science. Several faculty-student teams have won or placed highly in international research competitions, and our faculty put NMSU on the map in several research communities.

The strength and depth of the faculty also bring great teaching and learning experiences to the students in our department. Our department offers two undergraduate degrees (B.S. and B.A.), plus M.S. and Ph.D. graduate degrees in computer science. We also cooperate with other departments in offering an M.S. in Bioinformatics, and are working on further new M.S. degree plans. An accelerated BS/MS program allows undergraduate students to achieve both degrees in five years, and for non-CS-majors we offer several different tracks for a computer science minor.

Our small, faculty-taught classes give our major students a wonderful opportunity to be part of the departmental community and to do their best in an engaging and inclusive environment. Please learn about us here at this site and then come visit us on campus in Science Hall. We look forward to welcoming you and making your NMSU experience as rewarding and successful as possible. Go Aggies!
